    Is that scratch-built, modified/kit bashed or is there, or was there a kit for that?

    I had to pretty much scratch build it. I found some slate roofing material to use and a lot of Grandt Line windows. However I had to kit bash a bunch of them to get the unique windows that I needed.

    There in the back is a small shelter that serves the High Eureka Industrial Park's commuter needs.

    There's some really really good looking stations here! I really like them!

    I just completed my own station, but unlike the majority of pictures here, I can't show it in place on a completed layout - it's going to have to live in the white void for now...

    I based the interior roughly on the Caledonia station in Ontario, took the following "macro" video to try and show off the interior...

    If I recall correctly this is the "Hornbeck Station" from a company called JV Models. That kit dates to the mid-1970s. It was modern for the time!

    That's it. I'd seen it before, but couldn't remember where. Thanks! It has that modern look that is unique and mighty cool I think. I don't know when it was built, but the N&W's station at Radford, VA is an example. [04/02/1989 Kodachrome]

    You do recall correctly, I picked-up two of these kits in the late '80's early '90's for chump-change at a train show in the Bay Area N. Calif.
    I built one and squirreled away the other for possible future needs.

    This is the station on one of my Ntrak modules with a Japanese theme. The station and the overhead walkway are Green Max kits with the platforms being scratch built.

    This Ntrak module can also be used with an Asian themed layout that I belong to. Sometimes it serves as junction between the Ntrak Mountain Division and the Asian layout or just as part of the Asian layout with no Ntrak. When used that way I replace the sky board with a low profile board so the scene can be viewed from both sides.

    This photo shows that view.

    Heljan/ConCor had these available in the 1980's, which is when I acquired and built it.
    That is the only built-up station I have. It is about right for the typical hollow core door layouts I have created. It also found its way to an N scale club I used belong to. Currently it is in a box awaiting its next assignment.
